It's almost come as a shock to some people that Arsenal are kicking into gear and are starting to fly like R. Kelly believes he can.
It doesn't surprise me though. Not at all. There is too much quality in the squad for us not to be.
Of course, this current group of players is arguably one of Arsene Wenger's weakest since he joined the club but that just shows the strength of the previous teams he has had.
We aren't title challengers, and we suffered the worst start to a season since 1876 when John Lukic was in goal, but the place is buzzing at the moment.
The players are playing with confidence and really seem to enjoy each others company. I could imagine them all having tea and scones together.
I think Robin van Persie is key to this. Not just going by his magical form on the pitch but also the fact he appears to be a proper leader and captain.
In the past Wenger has often used the term 'mental strength'. So much so, you can be sure he used it in at least 99% of his previous interviews.
Admittedly I often rolled my eyes when he remarked on the 'mental strength' of the squad. I almost thought he was taking the pee a little bit because 'mental strength' was a quality I thought we lacked.
However you cannot throw that accusation at Robin and co. This lot have it in abundance. Not an ambulance.
To come from behind 34 times in a row is an achievement. I even think it could be a record. But this squad don't know when they are beaten.
There appears to be a siege mentality within the squad. Has Steven Seagal given an Under Siege motivational speech or something?
They have been knocked, been popped at more than someone on Poppers, ridiculed and written off faster than my Ford Fiesta.
Yet they STILL are in the top four, only a point off the best team in the whole wide world.
I'm actually starting to get a little excited for next season now. I know that is premature, and that's enough of my sexual problems, but this squad will grow and with a couple of decent acquisitions can really challenge.
The siege mentality developed by this bunch has become a joy to see. They fight for each other and battle as hard as those warrior's from Sparta.
On a completely different level check out the 1 Nil Down 2 One Up site by Dave Seager for a lovely tribute to another Arsenal legend and warrior, Rocky Rocastle, here.
